    According to the articles, which also talked about her solo concert last month, she is really hoping this is the single that breaks through as a big hit. She also mentioned that she would love to live in the Sangenjaya neighborhood, and if the song is a huge success she will build a house there, LOL.

    Oricon rankings, Week 1

    Enka Single Weekly Ranking #1
    Overall Single Chart Weekly Ranking #16
    Total Sales: 9.307

    The bad news is this is her lowest weekly single sales number as a soloist.

    On the other hand, the first week sales are in the same neighborhood as her third and sixth singles (Tomonoura Bojou, Saba Kaido)

    She still outsold Oku Midori in 1st week sales. And she also outsold Tomochin, who released her new single this week. (BTW, would have loved to have gone to one of Tomochin's events, but they conflicted with Wasamin's events) Moreover, this is generally where most Enka singles rank during their first week's release. Granted, Mizumori Kaori did a bit better with her new single last month, but she is considered one of the top current Enka artists, so Wasamin is right up there.

    But what does this all mean?

    Wasamin and her management will be working hard this year to bring the overall sales number up to a decent level. The nice thing about Enka is that in regards to sales it is more of a marathon than a sprint. Wasamin will undoubtedly be aggressively promoting the single throughout 2019. They definitely have some work to do, but we will see by the end of the year how the single ultimately does...

    And of course we should expect some kind of re-release some time in the late summer/early fall. In the meantime, please support Wasamin, and buy her single! Oh, and per Misaki-chan's request, please sing Koi no Owari Sangenjaya at karaoke, because that counts too!

    Her only tweet about it was that she was excited about the #1 ranking on the Enka chart. And yes, for an Enka single, this is actually a pretty good result. I'm just saying the sales number is lower than her previous singles, and given that in a sense she is still building her brand, that could be considered a bit of a setback. But I don't know, perhaps this is the sales number they were expecting.

    Ya know, her career is blossoming into a lot more than just her single releases. Considering all the media appearances she is doing now, the radio shows, the stage plays, she is doing quite well as an entertainer.
